HCM City (VNA) – Most Vietnamese youth show a high level of leadership potential, according to a global potential survey conducted by the UNESCO Centre for Culture and Education.

Survey results were based on 5,400 young Vietnamese aged 16-35, who completed an online assessment which provided a score for each of four capabilities: leader, manager, professional and doer.

Thirty-six percent of the participants were assessed as having high leadership potential, with ability to “inspire and guide others”.

Around one-quarter of participants were classified as professionals “interested in research and seeking innovation in their professional fields”.

Another one-quarter were found to be “doers who become directly involved and implement tasks”.

However, only 14 percent of the surveyed youth showed future potential to be managers.

The assessments were based on personal motivation, interests and behaviour.

As part of the annual competition, Today’s Voice Contest, the survey aimed to help young people better understand their capabilities and choose suitable careers.-VNA
